I mean, this cache is loaded in the function `fold-available-packages'
used by the option `--list-available` but not in the functions used by
the option `--search`.
Ludo pointed the commit 94aeec0aef03ab44e41bfc3e77c3b623cb3d607c which
improves the search by doing directly on the raw Texinfo instead.
Maybe you remembered this one.

Thank you to pointing me this patch, now I know a bit more about the
internals. Not sure to understand well. :-)
